Formed in 1915, the WI has a long history of campaigning on a wide range of issues.
WI campaigns are about changing things for the better and tackling the issues that matter to members. Members are at the heart of the WI and they play a central role in bringing issues onto the WI’s national agenda through our public affairs and campaigning.
From equal pay to climate change, from gaps in the midwifery workforce to the plight of the honey bee, WI members have embraced a diverse set of challenges and built a reputation for the WI as a practical and ambitious organisation that doesn’t shy away from tricky issues.
The resolutions and mandates process means every campaign starts within he membership. Read more about the wide range of WI campaigns and some recent successes, and see our campaigning history through snapshots going back to 1926.
